Tony Furtado, Ruth Moody Band, Dirty Martini 

When: Sat., Nov. 30, 8 p.m. 2013
As far as Portland's bluegrass/folk scene is concerned, few can beat out Tony Furtado in career longevity and skills. Furtado won banjo competitions as a child, and it shows in his detailed finger-picking. He sings, plays guitar, and is considered a "multi-genre artist," but is clearly a bluegrass banjo aficionado. Since the start of his career in 1992, Furtado has toured extensively, released 15 albums, and played with Alison Krauss and other folk musicians you probably haven't heard of unless you watch Oregon Art Beat and wear fleece. Though this style of music could easily fit into a granola commercial, there's no denying his clear dedication and talent. ROSE FINN
